    Yes, sadly.

    A young person I know has just been told that she must recover within the next month or be admitted to hospital for 'intensive therapy'. This isn't even GET.

    The NICE guidelines are going to be reviewed but the process wont start till about Dec/Jan. I am going to ask the chairman of NICE if, when the review process begins, the existing guidelines can be be changed. Expect most will think they cant. Depends how convincing I can be about how harmful the existing ones are. Wish me luck!
